3.4 Fibers


Fibers are not assimilated by a cat's organism, and thus provide no energy. Their role is neverthless primordial: they allow for proper intestinal functioning. There exist several types of fibers(?):

  • Cellulose: this is an insoluble fiber that stimulate transit by playing the role of a couterbalance;
  • FOS(?) (fructo-oligosaccharides) : these are soluble and fermentable fibers(?) that favour the maintenance of intestinal flora;
  • Mucilages (suh as psyllium): these are soluble and nonfermentable fibers(?) that swell by attaching themselves to water and transforming into gel, which improves transit.
